We can’t wait to see all of you and celebrate our first anniversary as an official Professional Specialist Association. It has been a tremendous achievement for early-career teachers to come together and form such a passionate initiative for supporting student teachers, new teachers, and TTOCs.

This social event and AGM (during Session 3) is our opportunity to say thank you, involve you in decisions, and build excitement for things to come!
